[Video Exclusive] Jimi Manuwa Speaks About His Showdown With Thiago Santos In Sao Paulo

Jimi Manuwa spoke exclusively to MMANytt about his upcoming fight with Thiago Santos at UFC Sao Paulo

UFC light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa will take on replacement Thiago Santos on Sept 22 at UFC Fight Night 137.

The Brit was originally scheduled to face Glover Teixeira, but after the Brazilian fell foul of a shoulder injury the UFC turned to Santos to make the move up from middleweight to face Manuwa in the main event.

Manuwa is currently out in Sweden training at the All Stars Gym alongside the likes of Alexander Gustaffson, Ilir Latifi and Hector Lombard.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Stefan Romare of MMANytt earlier today, Manuwa spoke about his new opponent and whether he’s feeling any pressure heading into the fight given his recent losing streak.
